Bottle. Oak, apple, vanilla, spice, honey, syrup, whiskey. Light hazy Orange apple cider like pour with minimal white head. Syrup. But medium to full body. More acidity would be better

thegreenrooster (3533) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Pour is a murky but bright yellow with almost no head. Aroma is all about the barrel. A vinous aspect is there all so. Flavor is again pretty much all of the barrel. Not that there is anything wrong with that but its just that it overpowers anything the base beer was going to offer. Finish is silky and none of the alcohol is present at all. It was well done just the wood aging overtook the whole beer. Maybe triples arent meant to be barrel aged.

marcus (7549) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours cloudy golden with a tiny off-white head and an earthy fruit aroma. There is a slightly fruity caramel malt flavor with some vanilla and a whiskey finish. That whiskey took the sweet right out of the malt. Quite interesting.

tmoreau (2932) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Shared 12.7 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a hazed, orange color, with a modest layer of off white, bubbly head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose offered some barrel hints, light spice, esters as dried fruit, and some lurking alcohol. Medium bodied, with soft carbonation, the taste continued the esters, presented some sweetness, alcohol warmth, and modest hop bitterness. Not bad, but barreling tended to subdue a good deal of the usual Tripel expressiveness, imo.

bhensonb (12447) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 16, 2014
375 c&c from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy amber gold with no head. Aroma is whiskey/wood/fruit. Full bodied, almost. Flavor is malt, something vinous, wood, caramel. A touch of whiskey, and a hint of heat. This is very smooth, with lots of different flavors, and they all blend into a delicious ale. Excellent.

rollsrace (65) - - AUG 25, 2014
Its expensive at $22 per 750ml bottle. However its good. Strong whiskey taste, sweet with some vanilla. The color is light. Strong alcohol amount at 10.5%

hopscotch (10080) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle... Muckfest 2014... Hazy caramel-colored pour with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is lightly funky, bready and vinous. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor offers pear, wine, oak and bread, with both crusty and alcoholic bitterness.
